The Winds of Time
Mirumoto Shohi-en is probably the largest Rokugani you have ever seen. It’s not that he’s necessarily tall, it’s that he is round. It looks as though he has never missed a meal, including a few belonging to other people.
With that said, however, there is a ferocity that lurks behind his eyes.
A minor daimyo of the Dragon clan, Mirumoto Shohi-en’s lands are at the western edge of the clan’s holdings – they are so far out, in fact, that there is no path directly into the mountains without first detouring South along the border of Lion-held territory. He also doesn’t seem to grow nearly as much food as the size of his lands indicates he should – and, in fact, he is known to let the Unicorn use some of his lands for their horses.
Every year, he opens his home up in the winter and invites a number of nearby daimyo (and their retinues) to join him. He also invites daimyo from further away, but they rarely attend. And – as is traditional – he also invites the Emperor himself to attend, but the Hantei has never responded to his requests.
Shohi-en is most famous for his library. It is said that he owns almost as much literature as the Emperor himself, and he has several times had to expand his castle to add more room for his ever-growing library.
